Targets on our Backs by J.M. Darhower [REVIEW]

The best way to keep your word is never to give it.

Not long ago, in a chapel in Vegas, I swore to love Karissa for the rest of my days. But nobody's promised an infinite number of tomorrows. Nobody's promised forever. Sometimes, all we have left is today.

Carpe Diem

Seize the day.

It should've been over, we should've been happy, but people are making it hard for me to live in peace. I've got so much blood on my hands they'll never be clean, and somebody out there seems to want me to pay for it. Happily Ever After always comes at a cost, one any real man would be willing to pay. But that doesn't mean I'm just going to roll over and accept these consequences.

Because when it comes to the woman I love? The life I've fought for?

Nobody is safe.

5 I Never-Want-This-Series-To-End
“Because even with everything that has happened, God help me, I do love him. I love him more than I ever though possible”

Dear J.M. Darhower, can you make this series go on forever? I can read ten million books on my favorite number tortured hunky killer. Sigh, I love you Naz and I love you too Karissa.  I was really happy and surprised with Target on Our Backs. If you are a fan of the series or have this crazy love-obsession with Naz, like I do, then you will understand my excitement.

There are no words.

I cried when I saw it on my kindle.

Karissa and Naz went through a lot of stuff in the previous books. Naz was a liar and a killer, Karissa held on to her resentment and anger. BUT at the end of the day, all was well. The thing I love about Target on Our Back is that it continues the story of Naz and Karissa, but all the problems they faced were external. Yes, they still have issues, but they never let it get to them.  It doesn’t hinder the relationship or the love they have for each other.

If an author can make tension, but not really have tension between the couple, to me that make for a great author and read.

“Not sure how many times I have to tell you… I’m not a good man, Karissa, and try as I might, I probably never will be”

“I’ll always come for you.  The … devil himself couldn’t stop me”

I devoured Target on Our Backs, it was a non-stop read. I couldn’t get enough of it and like I said, please write more books! I don’t care if Naz is in his 60’s, I’ll still read it.

Naz works on being better for Karissa, not for himself. God, I love this man. He doesn’t have regrets and I don’t think he feels guilty for much, but the things he does are for Karissa, because he loves her. He continues to protect her and at all cost. I LOVED THAT. Karissa and Naz have an open and honest relationship now. Naz doesn’t hold any secrets, but he also doesn’t talk about what he does. If Karissa wants to know all she has to do is ask.

Karissa is still in college and she’s kind of coming to terms with being Naz’s wife and what all that entails. She has to deal with her past with him, but she also has to work on her future and what she wants in it. I love Karissa’s youthfulness. She works on accepting herself, but she also brings the happier side of Naz, the side she makes him smiles and jokes with her.

“The man owns me. He consumes me. Every part of me was made for every part of him. It’s the kind of love I can’t imagine every living without. It’s raw, and real, and it’s ours”

My favorite part of the book are the parts where Naz and Karissa just cohabitate and have dialogue. I found it so common and adorable. It’s very different from the previous books. On top of all of this, Naz has to deal with the bosses and the politics around it. Someone is out to get him and he does everything he can to protect his wife.  So you will see new characters.

The book is filled with action and just when you think you figured it out, you are punched in the face again. It has so much love, passion, tension and drama to keep you on your toes. It’s a wonderful treat and I really hope the series lives on!
